The first time we decided that
We'd share each other's lives,
I was afraid of what might come
Of all the plunges and the dives.
But as time passed I came to see
What God had given me.
Not just a boyfriend, but a man
Who would set my spirit free.
Now I try to comprehend
The reason why you stay.
You give me all your heart and soul,
And I don't know what to say...
Except that I love and cherish you
And I hope you know I care,
'cause what I see in you...in us...
Is something that's so rare.
I'm sorry that I hurt you
And I want you to know now,
That you mean the world to me,
And I need you to show me how...
Show me how to live and learn
What it is to share our dreams.
Show me how to speak and when
To know it's what it seems.
Most of all I want you to
Show me the feeling of love.
'Cause as I learn, with every breath,
I'll thank God for sending you from above.
